How does Corporate Social Responsibility apply to the restaurant industry?
According to the Technomic August 2010 Market Brief, Corporate Social Responsibility is a hot topic for the restaurant industry and consumers: "Besides the collective good that goes along with being socially responsible, restaurants can reap additional rewards, some of which could add to their bottom lines. In particular, about a fifth of consumers (19%) indicate that they will go out of their way to eat at restaurants that are socially responsible, and nearly half (45%) will do so if it’s convenient."
Industry statistics from the National Restaurant Association and The Cone Group convey that restaurant consumer demand for corporate social responsibility is clearly growing. Experts predict that the demand is not a short-term trend, but rather a shift in human sentiment that will continue to grow.
